Though it has been years in development, it looks like Nicolas Winding Refn's remake of Logan's Run starring his Drive star Ryan Gosling has hit a snag, namely because Gosling has apparently dropped out of the production.
Variety's Justin Kroll confirmed that Gosling dropped out in a tweet yesterday, but didn't get into why the actor dropped out.
There are, of course, a number of reasons why Gosling may have dropped out. He's certainly got a busy schedule as one of the most in-demand actors working right now. It's possible his exit may be a result of an unavoidable scheduling conflict.
Refn still remains attached to the project and is still aiming to shoot next year. In the meanwhile, fans of the Gosling-Refn combo can take solace in Only God Forgives, which Refn is currently putting the finishing touches on and is set to hit theaters sometime next year.
